The [Thursday] Papers
"North Korea said on Thursday it would carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the United States, dramatically stepping up its threats against a country it called its 'sworn enemy,'" Reuters reports.
The best reporting on North Korea lately, though, was done by the daughter of Google chairman Eric Schmidt. See Sophie in North Korea.
That doesn't mean the mayor isn't for transparency in the process, though. After all, the public will be to see the results of any deal unfold right before their eyes.
"While it was initially believed the Jackson family might be moving out of their home in Washington, D.C., and back into their home in Chicago, it turned out the movers were bringing items from his former Congressional office on Capitol Hill."
Oops, a couple words accidentally got edited out of Jay Levine's report. I'll restore them:
"While it was initially believed by the media who could think of no other reason for a moving van to be there that the Jackson family might be moving out of their home in Washington, D.C. . . . "
Just Another Police Lawsuit
"Riots broke out on Chicago's South Side after police shot Jamaal Moore to death on Dec. 15, according to Chicago newspapers. The Tribune and others reported that the shooting came after a police chase, and that Moore, 23, and others, were suspected of robbing a truck driver."
Sam Adam Jr. is representing the family, DNAinfo Chicago reports.
Also from DNA:
"A Freedom of Information Act request from DNAinfo Chicago was returned by the Chicago Police Department redacted in its entirety."
Just like in North Korea.
Regrets, They Should Have A Few
The 16-story building at 6730 S. South Shore Drive was not equipped with a sprinkler system. Nor did it have a hard-wired alarm or communications system to disable elevators and alert condominium owners.
The delayed safety requirements may have put some building owners out of business, but now some of their tenants are out of their lives.
"Just over a year ago, Tunney was facing the same questions after a 32-year-old woman died in a high-rise fire at 3130 N. Lake Shore. Her neighbors had left the door to their burning 12th-floor apartment propped open because their cat refused to leave.
"Like the South Shore condo, that 21-story building was a pre-1975 high-rise that was not equipped with a sprinkler system, nor did it have hard-wired alarm or communications system to disable elevators and alert residents of the roughly 300 apartments.
"Like Hairston, Tunney said at the time he had 'no regrets' about pushing back the deadline for life-safety improvements."
